    This has got nothing to do with millenials. Just a very poorly made video. Taking data and making dubious correlations and conclusions with it.

    Further, why is a caucasian ignorantly - and incorrectly - commenting on another ethnicity and culture? Good way to offend 1.4 billion + hundreds of millions of Chinese around the world.

    Some interesting info presented here, but the presentation itself is awful. A millennial angle gone bad.

    Perfect example of the unfortunate shift I've noticed on RV last ~6-months - prioritizing quantity over quality. I don't need a new post every single day, just one or two really good ones every week. Used to be that even if it was a topic I had no interest in, I knew RV would put together & show some interesting points of view. What I loved best about this platform - never felt I was wasting my time and it exposed me to people/ideas that were brand new. Now, I find my viewing far more selective (usually) because so much of what is posted is just kind of a waste...
    Note; fwiw, I am a millennial & it is clear this sort of (sorry, pejorative term, but feel it's appropriate) drivel is supposed to 'appeal' to me. It doesn't.

    The beginning of the show sets up the shows purpose: Encouraging investors to explore how facts/events connect to form investment theses. Essentially to stimulate your thinking. Do I believe I need it? No. Do I enjoy it over a cup of coffee, running in the background? Yes. If you really hate it, don't watch it. They monitor the watch count to determine how successful the show is. It is light material but there is enough heavy lifting on this channel I don't see the validity in the complaints.

    Coffee mugs with straws. Either a sweet cocktail or juice I'm guessing.

    Frankly, I joined this community for 2 reasons. reasonable prices, and adventures in finance! I enjoy all of the personalities, obviously Grant, but Grant and Alex for sure. No problems with Justine either, but the Knock On Effect cannot hold a candle to AinF. I appreciate also the intellectual exercise of widening horizons and trying new things (hence my presence here), but I'm afraid this series is not working.

    What a tough crowd! (Just read the comments)
    60 something female subscriber and I try to be open and appreciate the way the millennials convey info.
    It was interesting! ( maybe shorter or tighter segments is my constructive criticism )
    Good job both of you!

    Not “food” - iPhone slip-up. Should read “good” content.

    By all means, try out new products, but please keep the food stuff you have (such as Adventures in Finance).

    Please take a lesson from Apple and stop adding new products. As an original RV subscriber, I feel that the quality really takes a hit every time you try to become more of a “mass market” product. Thi

    Grant is a hard guy to replace on radio, that’s for sure.

    Sadly, I stopped listening once the show ceased becoming Adventures in Finance. This is one product choice I feel RV needs to learn from - namely, when you have a good thing going, DON’T change it!

    Bring back Adventures In Finance! Or at least some kind of Grant Williams-based podcast.

    I can’t see this podcast persuading people to subscribe to RV. It’s not a showcase for the quality that is RV. Justine and Roger do a good job (although Roger has his arms tied behind his back playing the straight “Professor”) but for some reason Alex doesn’t come across as insightful as he did at times during Adventures in Finance

    Alex looked pretty intense there for awhile...was hilarious them talking about what women want.

    I can tell they are trying new things to make it better. I think if they keep iterating they will get better.

    The Knock-on Effect is too "cute" which makes it too long and very boring. The humor is very interesting at least to each participant, but not to me. The actual information presented is well worth knowing and seems well researched. This video should have been five minutes long max and would have been well received for the actual knock-on effect. This is not Sesame Street. Please keep the series, but rethink the presentation and lenght for the sake of the viewers. Thanks. DLS

    I will consider more value Real Vision if less content all high quality, at any given time the most important themes of society economy and markets if well summarized may fit in no more than 10 hour of content a month, that will keep RV very focus in good quality, Real Vision is very good quality compare to many other information medias but I see the recent increase in content as dilluding the good quaility videos between a no-that good videos, I think RV should write this as a principle as any media company will face this problem by increasing the content quantity.
    Today people have little time and we are flooded by informaiton everywhere, and in this world knowing what is good quality is key, for me RV is all good quality but recently I am starting to see some videos as not that giving value
    I hope it doesnt borther anyone, I believe is a constructive critic, regards to all the tema of RV for the great job they do

    Lol @ Justine telling Alex he'd be at the bottom of the dating market. I didn't like the first one much but I'm liking this one, I haven't seen the other ones. Justine does a great job across the board. Alex you are adjusting great to the transition from radio to having your face on screen, and also from conversing with the silver fox that is Grant to Justine and the professor. I look forward to seeing Alex relax more as he established some chemistry with Justine. Thumbs up!

    That final segment with Alex 'The Heartbreak Alley' was all over the place. I didn't enjoy it at all!
